How to get tempered elder dragon? once you begin searching for Elder Dragon tracks, you may come across odd tracks that also turn your scout-flies blue. The monster in question will be outlined in purple. Collect enough of these tracks, and you will unlock an investigation for a Tempered monster at the Resource Center. Breaking parts and hunting tempered monsters will also have chances to unlock more investigations as well.


In Monster Hunter World, there’s a particularly efficient way to quickly farm Tempered Elder Dragon Investigations. A big part of the Monster Hunter World mid-late game is fighting what the game calls Tempered Monsters. As we’ve previously explained. tempered monsters are more challenging versions of monsters you’ve already fought.

They hit harder, and require you to be on your toes for the entire fight. Tempered Investigations is how you get to fight Tempered Monsters, but sometimes, Investigations for this special breed of monsters don’t show up on your list as often as you’d like.

In case you’re unaware, Investigations primarily show up on your list the more monster footprints you gather (see our beginners guide for more). The same goes for Tempered Investigations, but since you can’t control how many of these you’ll find, it gets tricky.

However, there is a way you can sort of game the system and gather loads of footprints (enough for two-three Investigations per hunt). The best way of doing this is by going after Nergigante, because he tends to leave so many footprints behind.

How to farm Tempered Elder Dragon Investigations

Starting from the top, you need to have at least one Tempered Investigation unlocked for Nergigante. Load it up, and start at the Southwest Camp in Elder’s Recess. You’ll notice that this is not the closest camp to his lair, and that’s the point. Starting at the Southwest Camp allows you pass the time before reaching area 14, which is where the fight will start.


You can either sit around doing nothing for five or so minutes, allowing him to generate more footprints, or, you can spend this time gathering Beryl Deposits – a very useful material. If you want the most efficient way of doing this, there’s a particular farming route you can follow that allows you to pick up a lot of Beryl Deposits.

The easiest way to unlock many of these at a time is by taking advantage of your first assigned quest against a Tempered Kirin, unlocked at HR 49. Kirin are docile, you can simply stalk the Kirin around the map and pick up the tempered tracks it leaves behind. These will provide you randomly with investigations for a random Elder Dragon, which includes:

Tempered Elder Dragon tracks will also spawn in set places around the different location as well, but these are much less numerous than Threat Level 1 and Threat Level 2 tempered monster tracks. On average you’ll find one tempered elder dragon track each time you go to a map.
You’ll also unlock tempered elder dragon investigations when fighting tempered elder dragons. Each time you break a part, or pick up a track left behind by the monster you’re hunting, you’ll have a chance to unlock a new tempered investigation.

When you’ve exhausted all deposits, go back to camp and wait for the Beryl Deposits to re spawn (you can track them by viewing the map) and repeat this run until you’re satisfied. Then, head to area 14 and start the fight.

When Nergigante leaves the area, you’ll have an opportunity to pick all of the tracks he’s been leaving behind since you loaded up the zone.

There should be enough in there for two or three Investigations, but you should know that there’s no guarantee that these will be Tempered Investigations. Even still, this is an easy way to farm them, and some of the Investigations you generate will always be Tempered.
